Marcelo Bielsa gave his thoughts to the media after seeing his side beat West Bromwich Albion.

The Leeds United head coach was pleased with his team, who scored five goals during an impressive display at the Hawthorns.

“The most important thing is that we were very efficient,” Bielsa said.

“Normally it’s difficult for us to make chances to score five goals. In this game we managed to do that even if one of the goals, we weren’t responsible for it.

“Had we not been so efficient, the margin of the victory would have been lower.

“Of course the first goal matters but we were dominating and trying to create chances of our own.

“All of the goals gave me happiness.”

On the performance itself, the five goals were all fully deserved but it was also important for Bielsa to see the Whites keep another clean sheet, the fourth away from home this season.

Marcelo explained: “We dominated the game, we made a few errors and they couldn’t capitalise on anything.

“We attacked constantly and we were efficient, all those details make it a positive performance.

“It’s important for us not to concede goals because we’ve conceded way too many goals for the amount of games played.

“To avoid conceding a goal increases the security of the team.”
